The Race (The Tale of Comparison)

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Always put my hope in Christ
Believing all will be right
Now I wonder why it´s hard
Sometimes things just get so bad
Look to see how my mates run
And how brightly their lights burn
Those who started before me
Seem better than I´ll e´er be
See their tracks - it´s so easy
No troubles - they´re less busy
Seems their faith work so much more
Some don´t believe in the LORD
Yet they´re fast and I´m so slow
Wonder how I got this low
I think all I´ve rightly done
Yet I see my mates have gone
How much have I to believe -
That I may also achieve?



Better do I rightly know
In Christ will I always g ...

The Race (The Tale of Hope)

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Thought I had it all planned out
My head filled with the full route
With high hopes I went to race
"Cos I thought I held the ace
Surprised to see crooked tracks
I wanted to turn my back
But it´s too late to do that
So I´ve got to face the facts
Being a while but seems so long
Hoping to hear the end song
Running on - so full of sweat
Running hard - the price to get
From within all strength is gone
Wish to rest on this soft lawn



Unto my Savior I look
With HIM my hope firmly hooks
Right now I can dream again
With HIM I will feel no pain
Daily my strength HE renews
Hope, joy, strength no longer few
So with rest I run my ra ...

This Passage

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Carefully read this passage.
Don´t live life just to manage
Like you´re born in a village
Getting by on little wage
Frustrated and full of rage.
You were made in God´s image
Your whole life is not garbage
You´re from a royal lineage
The LORD is your heritage
HE´ll set you free from this cage.




You did not descend from apes
Don´t patch your life with a tape
HE´ll wrap you with glorious cape
Look to HIM for divine cake
HE gives more than you can take.
Your life is not a mistake
God made you and won´t forsake
Come to HIM and you´ll awake
HIS Son died all for your sake
Turn to HIM for your remake.

The Sovereign King

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


There´s ONE who created the universe
From when it was without form like a gas
HE sent forth HIS Word to make each part parse
Till all was formed and became a real mass
What a wonder! Oh, it is not a jazz
HIS Glory is shown in each line of verse
Nothing compares to the power that HE has



HE is covered with splendor and Glory
From HIM proceeds wisdom without boundary
The creature recounts HIS endless story
If you dare cross HIM, you will be sorry
HIS judgment is beyond any jury
Though HE is the same, HIS form may vary
HIS Person is a bundle of mystery



Everything that exists was made by HIM
In HIS Presence is tremendous light beam
Come to HIM and yo ...

He Gave Me Life

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


I was once dead from within
Constantly amount to nil.
Inside me was no good deed
I should be kept in a bin.
I felt like fish with no fins
Under water with no gills.
Struggling just to climb life´s hill
Defeat was all I could feel.
All these sometimes made me mean
Until Christ came to redeem.



He gave me eternal life
From my spirit, I´m alive.
Christ made me HIS glorious wife
I commune with the divine.
So much power that I can dive
High cliffs, deep seas; not a lie.
No disease can stay inside;
Darkness is far from my side;
No evil can come beside.
I can do all things all times
"Cos I´m seven times alive.

Rise Down

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


You program your life like you are in charge
Chasing life´s goodies thinking they will merge
Gathering small pieces just to be large
Making much efforts, you feel at the verge.



You plan with no view of divinity
Not knowing there is severe gravity
Going ahead with your activity
Facing challenge with wishful brevity.



Sorry to inform you, "That´s a rise down."

Grace - Power of God unto Salvation

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


I was born with quite a bad condition
All I did had a default negation
This was due to the gross nature of sin
No matter how much well or good I did
It didn´t matter "cos it was nothing
One fateful day, I came across something
It was Love that called me out of darkness
And set me in HIS marvelous brightness
HE brought me out of my nonentity
And placed me in HIS Divine Royalty
HE took away nature of sinfulness
And installed in me Seed of Holiness
HE showed me how HE bore all of the pain
The wrath and wage of sin, on HIM, it rained
That HE may once for all shut sin away
Between GOD and I, became HE the WAY
Not a function of deeds but of believe
It´s by ...

Healing For You

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


If there´s lots of pain
Flowing through your veins;
Sickness in body
And you are moody;
Depression in mind -
A kick from behind;
Disease with no cure
And it re-occurs.



Now, you´ve got to know -
Truth that sets aglow.
Christ came to the earth
That you have sound health.
Stripes HE bore by will
So you will be healed
Never to fall ill
Nor by disease killed.
Isn´t by your work-faith
Yes! You heard me right.
Don´t condemn yourself
It´s about HIMSELF.
Just believe and trust
HIS Love never rusts -
Loves beyond measure
Heals you with pleasure.
Hold on to HIS Word
And Christ´s finished works -

General poem by T-Ralph

My life is not nil,
I´m set on a hill,
The world sees my teal,
"Cos YOU sound the zills.
YOU alone are leal.
YOUR SPIRIT, my Seal
YOUR Word is my Meal.
I go on my kneels,
Just to know YOUR will,
And walk in YOUR heels.
To me, YOU reveal
All YOUR plans and deals.
YOU give me the chills.
I drink from YOUR rills.
I long for YOUR fill,
Such heavenly dill,
To eat from YOUR mill.
Wrapped in YOUR arms till
YOUR Presence is real,
It´s all I can feel,
Consumed by YOUR zeal.

UNTIL YOU MAKE A CHOICE

General poem by Michael

MichaelMichael

On a sunny day,
In my hood,
I finally decided,
Come life or death,
I will follow you,
I love you,
Years ago,
I used to do his will,
I was loved,
By everyone,
For my every deed,
I go to his sanctuary,
To make enquiry,
About reality,
Of living,
Little did I know,
That things would soon change,
I never understood,
But he never stopped,
Creating loops,
That I may connect,
To know what I ask,
Until today,
I knew,
His glory started with a story,
One I knew,
But didn't understand,
I saw his strives,
And wished,
"only if I had known I wouldn't have asked"
I thought,
Within my heart,
No way I'm following him,
Then I was touched,
The touch of love, ...

I Just Wanna Know You More

General poem by T-Ralph

There´s something that I long for
It´s Someone as my Mentor
In fact, HE is my Savior.



For long before I knew YOU
YOU´ve loved me whate´er I do
Now, I just wanna know YOU.



All I know isn´t enough
I just wanna get enough
So, I delve deep for enough.



The deep things YOU have concealed
I long that they be revealed
My face, YOUR SPIRIT unveiled -



In clear view, YOUR Face I see
The more I see, more I be
So deep as depth of the sea.



Like fire caught-up in my bones
Like hot oil within my veins
Is a desire in my heart -



To know YOU than e´er before
Kept in the light of YOUR Word

LORD Lead Me

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


For quite a while, I walked in my own ways
Leading myself with my head all my days
Sometimes in my struggle, I see sun rays
Deep in my heart, I hear a voice that says -
"Trust the LORD and let HIM lead "cos it pays"



Forging ahead and thinking I was wise
Led by my feelings, ears, nose, mouth and eyes
I was surprised as I saw my debts rise
Headaches and itchy heads thinking it´s lice
"Cos I led myself, now I pay the price



Now I sit to learn the good Way of God
I listen to HIS Word on my iPod
And I respond to HIM with a yes-nod
By Zoe, my tree continues to bud
In all, I receive comfort by HIS rod



From now on, I lean ...

GIVE HIM PRAISE

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Take a minute to think
About the LORD´s goodness
And you will be amazed
At HIS wonderfulness.
Remember the beauty
HE caused your eyes to see
And all the gracious words
HE makes your ears to hear.
How HE protected you
And made your enemies to flee.
Your mouth has tasted
All the flavors of the LORD´s kindness.
Your nostrils continues to perceive
The fragrance of HIS Love and Mercy.
Your heart has experienced cleansing
From all sin, guilt, pain and hatred.
You can always find peace
In HIS everlasting forgiveness.
You breathe in HIS daily supplies
And you breathe out excess to bless others.
You drink from the refreshing rivers of life
You feed from the fre ...

I Need Your Grace

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


It seems the ground is above
I begin to lose my hope
Must I continue to cope?
Oh my God, I need Your Grace.



Now, nothing is working right
It won´t last long, this last light
Who will save me from this plight?
Oh my God, I need Your Grace.



This harsh sound is just so loud
Soon I might fall to the ground
When do I hear relief sound?
Oh my God, I need Your Grace.



Blue is not the sky´s color
Fields have lost their green splendor
How do I open this door?
Oh my God, I need Your Grace.



Losing my breathe in this fire
Hope is gone from my fibre
Should I stay or retire?
Oh my God, I need Your Grace.

General poem by T-Ralph

When the sun begins to set
When the darkness looms without
When the last candle goes out
It´s time to turn up your light.



When around you is water
When the rain gets heavier
When it´s as cold as freezer
Then, turn up your light heater.



When the world wants compromise
When set on you are strange eyes
When you want to load the dice
It´s time to turn up your light.



God is your energizer
The world must hear your thunder
Fill the dark sky with your light

Don´t let your fame down.
Point to Christ in the limelight
And your life won´t crash down.

Never afraid of the world´s fright
Higher must your kite fly!



You are the light city
Works of faith is your entity.
You are a sky thunder
Therefore, you can´t hide under!



You are the bright city
Terrible fire upon the hill
Annihilating the enemy´s activity
So, brighter must your light burn!



As for you who are still dark,

And your dark past will be far from history
Then, you´ll begin to radiate the Father&a ...

Without Jesus

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Without Jesus, you are like -
A car without a wheel
A gun without a bullet
A bomb without a trigger
A bow without an arrow
A bulb without electricity
A well without water
A bird without wings
A mouse without cheese
A sheep without shepherd
A day without sun
An ocean without tides
Winter without snow
Earth without moon
The sky without stars
A star without light
A human without brain
A sacrifice without an offering
A body without spirit
A soul without hope
A heart without love



If you are without Jesus,
You don´t just fit
You won´t just click
Your life won´t tick.

Unstable Jack

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Long ago Jack became a born again
But wallows in sin again and again
Of his bad thoughts, he couldn´t bargain
His mind was lost, he couldn´t regain



So spiritual, he went up and high
But falls soon enough in hot oil and fry
Such times he sighs and begins to cry
So sad inside, he feels alone and dry



Again he recovers and soars above
In this pure state, he admires and loves
Sin and guilt crashes him like a one-winged dove
Jack again, in this cycle revolves



The message of law sets fire in his domain
Helpless and hopeless, Jack remains
But the true Gospel of Grace brings life to his veins
Just then, he knew his life won´t be in va ...

JESUS - The Answer for the World

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


Everyday we face a world of chaos
People doing evil without remorse;



Humans are dying because of sickness
Doctors desperate for means of wellness;



So many, too poor living in hunger
Yet the corrupt with food on his finger;



There are those who always abound in pain
And those who could help look down in disdain;



Religious crisis, civil wars, disputes
Attempts to settle bring up more conflicts;



Yet still remains traces of racism
And the world still struck with terrorism;



The heart of men darkened with bitterness
Always avenging and no forgiveness;



Gaze to the sky to look at peaceful stars
But down here are natu ...

When I am perishing in poverty
YOU bless me with Heavenly riches.



When I am oppressed on all sides
YOU delivered me into great freedom.



When I am in distress
YOU give me sweet comfort.



When I am faced with shame
YOU cover me with glory.



When I am confused
YOU give me clarity.



When I am at cross-roads
YOU give me direction.



When I am scared
YOU give me boldness.



When I can´t think straight
YOU give me sound-mind.



When I am weak
YOU re-new my strength.



When I get so busy
YOU carry my casted burden.

Choose to Rest

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


In my troubles
And in my worries
I choose to rest
And watch God work out HIS best.



In my pain
I lost my gain
I choose to rest
To be heavenly blest.



I struggle to survive
Through the storms of the sea
I choose to rest
And pass my test.



In my sins
And good fight of faith
I choose to rest
Upon HIS Grace.



Through "my" search for greener pastures
I found myself in the valley and shadow of death
Now I choose to rest in the secret place
And HIS shadow overshadows all evil shadows



My past hunts me down
My present puts me down
But I choose to rest
Upon HIS Gracious arms, I lay.

A GREAT ADVANTAGE WEVE GOT (LOVE)

General poem by Michael

MichaelMichael

"Hear oh Israel for the lord your God is one" Deuteronomy 6:4


For love is the foundation,
Of our God's throne it is,
We are in existence because of him,
With love he created us first,
He saved us again,
Why?
Love,
He said,
"I and the father are one"
"You shall be one in me, as I am one in the father"
In him we are one,
But at the mist of the enemy,
Lies the root of disagreement,
They come together,
To fight against us,
God's own body,
We defeat them,
With patience,
Despite with their number,
They end up fighting against themselves,
For they are not united,
In the days of Noah,
When the sons of God,

THE FANGS OF SIN

General poem by destinedtee



I thought of the doings of the saint..
Spotless were his deeds, not a daint..
Walking in the paths of the Just..
Where righteousness and discipline is: A Must..



I tot of the deeds of the Sinner...
Whose conscience has been made to simmer..
In the pot of immorality and sin...
... To be eaten by the cravings of the flesh; unseen...



Then it dawned on me;
that sin is the offspring of the serpent..
Who decieved man, to be barnished and live..
In the desert of suffering, even if they repent..



It crawls its way into the conscious...
With cunning feels of charms and seeming pleasure..
It gets into the subconscious..
And fight the good spirits ...

Am still a vessel oh lord
Use me
Though I might be rusty

The task frightens me
Hold me
I need to stand above my fears
Carry me



I have no power of my own
Anoint me
I feel empty within

INSPITE OF ALL THESE

HOW DEEP THE FATHERS LOVE FOR US

General poem by iphee...

iphee...iphee...

How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure



How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory



Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers



It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished



I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

I do not walk alone
God is with me
He leads me through
Thus, am on the right part



I do not fight alone
It´s not really my fight
It´s the lord of host´s
Victory is sure



I do not speak alone
I have nothing to say
I only open my mouth
He fills it with words



I do not reason alone
Even when it seems right
His thoughts are always the best
Thus I have an expected end



I walk confidently
I fight victoriously
I speak life
I think Big
Am complete in him!

To Whom Do You Belong To (Part 2)

General poem by Michael

MichaelMichael

I kneel before the king in spirit,
My lord and God, Jesus,
Not in my closet or the sanctuary,
Where people will see and say,
He calls upon God,
And the devil laughs,
But in the realm where the devil himself see and trembles,
And I pray in spirit and simple tongue,
Lord empty me,
Over again,
But this time,
Take me, reduce me,
Till I am nothing but what you created alone,
That I will be yours totally,
And make me,
Drop the toys and all,
That is for the devil,
At all cost,
That I,
The one made son of the king of king with power,
May sit by your side for evermore,
Saying Holy Holy Is The Lord,
Lord God Almighty,

To Whom Do You Belong To (Part 1)

General poem by Michael

I look to the heavens,
Endlessly thinking of drawing nearer,
Successful I was,
But for a little time it was,
Serious battled I was with my state,
What have I missed?
Where had I got it wrong?
Then he came to me,
In my weakest state,
Uncontrollable my emotions and thought were,
He left it in my heart,
WHAT HAVE I GOT THAT BELONGS TO THE DEVIL?
Like a rich man has access to his property anywhere,
So it is for a poor man,
For if Christ has me by power,
Through redemption,
But yet I harbor the devil´s pet,
He, the devil can claim me anywhere,
What´s it I´ve got in me?
That makes my ownership doubtable,
Why does my heart still ask?

Even if on your neck, is placed a sword.

And there´s nothing in your pocket.
Just keep your faith plugged-in like in a socket.

In all things, keep to HIS Word

In front of you,
There is a valley;
And just ahead of you,

So, speak!



In front of you,
There is a sea;
And very thirsty became you,
But sea-water is as bitter tea.
So, speak!



In front of you,
There is fire;
God says he will be with you,
Even in this dire.
So, speak!



Whatever transpires in your ward,
Always continue in proclamation of the WORD,
And await the transformation of your world.



So, speak the WORD ...

Jesus lives

General poem by goldpii

Many are the woes and crimes of the wicked
Though God´s grace separates me from them.
My soul finds rest in God´s love alone
As my salvation comes from Him.



I will never conform to the pattern of the world
Instead I shall transform by renewing my mind.
My faith in Jesus and what He stands for
Teaches be forgiving, merciful and kind.



Jesus lives in the hearts and souls of every Christian
And His Spirit helps them overcome weakness and sin.
Christians are free to surrender and serve God´s will
Avoiding what is ungodly, justify their blessings and begin again.

And principalities of might.
But Jesus resurrection showed

He was born in an obscure village.
He worked in a carpenter shop until he was about thirty.
He then became an itinerant preacher.
He never held an office.
He never had a family or owned a house.
He didn't go to college.
He had no credentials but Himself.



After preaching three years, the public turned against Him.
His friends ran away.
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.
While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had on earth.
He was laid in a borrowed grave.

I watch them drop for me and you

And I say to myself what a wonderful king



Other love is his life he lied down for our sins
And also the grace he gave to every sinners that repent
I see blinds saying "yes I can see"
What then did I say to myself is you're a might king



I see the righteous people welcome to his kingdom
And others remaining condemned to hell forever
And I say to myself what a justice king you're,
Yes, I say to myself what a wonderful king.

General poem by Michael

In the mist of birds,
Its different,
It fly highest,
No one knows where it is,
It sees all,
But no bird sees it,
It is the strongest,
Killing more dangerous animals,
Carrying heavier animals,
At 40 years it becomes weak,
It wishes to die,
Unable to fly and hunt well,
Yet its refuses to die,
So it goes again,
To the highest mountain top,
To break its beak,
By striking its beak on the mountain top,
To remove its old and heavy feathers,
With the help of its new grown back beak,
Then it comes back,
After a long period of pain,
hungry and thirsty,
It goes to make its hunt,
Like a very young strong eagle,
It hunts again,
Only if men realise,
We are made to dominate,

General poem by Hephzibah

Why do you feel the whole world is on your shoulders?
Why bother to gather your feathers?
They are nothing compared to your father.
God clothed the birds with feathers in thousands;
Beautiful, graceful, majestic and never nervous.



Of all the lovely handiworks of God,
You are the loveliest.
Of all the good masterpieces of God,
You are the best.
So do yourself a favour,



Stop worrying, and start worshipping.
He deserves it for knowing all of you.

But even when said to be premature,

When you think of rest, don´t you think of death?
You hear people say sleep is different from death.

Fingers at this point flies around.
No one wants to die.

Almost everyone wants to walk.

And likewise there is hell.

Up from the miry clay,
Saving my soul, making me whole,
Though I had wandered away.


Into the will of Jesus,
Deeper and deeper I go,
Praying for grace to follow,
Seeking His way to know;
Bowing in full surrender
Low at His blessed feet,
Bidding Him take, break me and make,
Till I am molded, complete.


Into the cross of Jesus
Deeper and deeper I go,
Following through the garden,
Facing the dreaded foe;

MASTER

General poem by UTlola

UTlolaUTlola

IN Him
We have a past no more
Our present, He fills with joy
Our future, a purpose in Him
If we surrender our will
He will fill us with His
And when our hopes fail
Dreams don´t fall through
He will show His plans for us
Is much better than our misplaced hopes
When you let Him lead
To be in the driver´s seat
You had better believe
That all is well indeed!

It's D Beginning of D End of d prev day;
D Bright Morning Star shines;
The Son of Man wakes;

climbing down from D Rock of Ages are D Lion and D

and he uses D Rod of Salvation to lead them;

CREED AND DEED

General poem by Gbengaodeyinka

GbengaodeyinkaGbengaodeyinka

Some take ample time to read;
With fervor somewhat like greed;
But alas they are far from coming to wit;
With the transforming power of the Holy Writ.



All they care to know is "the letter";
The canons,tenets,precepts and rite;
But clasped they remain in sin´s fetters;
For the letter kills but life springs from the Spirit of Light.



So if in your being, fleshly works are rife;
And you´re alien to the kingdom life;
Then,you must come under the Spirit´s knife;
Only then can you be the Saviour´s "wife".



And if wife,claiming possession of "His Seed´;
Having taken to the "call" good hee ...

LOVE

General poem by Mary

MaryMary

1 COR 13: 1-13



Love is patient, love is kind,
And not jealous,
Love does not brag,
And not arrogant, and not wicked to us,
Love is good.



Love does not act unbecomingly,
It does not seek its own, it´s not provoked,
Does not take into account a wrong suffered,
Does not rejoice in righteousness but rejoice with the truth,
Love is good.



Love makes all difference,
Love is the perfect solution,
And possible only when we are deeply aware of depth of forgiveness we have received.



Love bears all things, believes all things,
Love hopes all things, endures all things,
Love is good.



Mary

I LOVE YOU LORD

General poem by T-Ralph

I love YOU, LORD -
Even before I loved YOU,
YOU had loved me.
Even while I was yet a sinner,
YOU died for me.
Even while I yet hated YOU
YOU laid YOUR life for me.



I love YOU, LORD -
For YOUR Mercies endures forever
For YOUR Grace is abundant

And of YOUR fullness have I received Grace for Grace

For I´m with YOU in Heavenly places
For YOUR angels are in charge over me, bearing me up

THE BROKEN HEART THE RENEWED HEART

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph



He entered the field
A broken heart he has and all he could find.
Bad tools and bent instruments
Gave him the wrong implements.
He kept thinking the field and plants
Were his to claim.
How is he to plow and plant
For the JUDGE to be satisfied?



After much toiling and struggling
He met the Advocate
Who pleaded for his attention
"All who labour and heavy laden
I give rest", the Advocate promised.
... Knocking... Asking... Preaching... Drawing...



He accepted the Advocate
But his heart was not mended.
Rather, his heart was replaced -
A new heart was given.
Renewal of mind was required of him.
The Bread is the key.
From the new heart,

FIRST AND LAST ADAM

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph



Adam was a man of fear but Jesus is a man of faith;
Adam brought trouble but Jesus is the Prince of Peace;
Adam brought sorrow but Jesus brought joy;
Adam brought despair but Jesus is the hope of glory;
Adam brought shame but Jesus brought glory;
Adam was a demonstration of impatience but Jesus is patient;
Adam´s curiosity and freedom lead to false joy,
But Jesus´ tribulation led to true joy;



Adam´s heart was hatred but Jesus´ heart was Love;
Adam lived by works but Jesus gives us Grace;
Adam believed in wrath but Jesus gives forgiveness;
Adam´s sin leads to death but Jesus´ death led to life;

GODS WAYS

General poem by Mimmytrippie

MimmytrippieMimmytrippie


Is it possible that God´s ways baffle us because he is determined to give us more and better than we ask for?
We know what we want - explanations and escape from life´s pain.
He knows what we need - to find Him in the midst of everything.
We want to be given reasons and relief.
He waits to give us His grace and glory.

WISDOM FOR WOMEN

General poem by Mimmytrippie

MimmytrippieMimmytrippie



Saw this somewhere and thought I should share...
Beauty attracts men but wisdom keeps them; Elegance catches men´s attention but intelligence convinces them;
Nagging irritates men but constructive silence weakens them...
The BOY in every man pumps out occasionally but your ability to handle this is a woman´s truest maturity...
Women are everywhere but queens are scarce...
Let the queen in you come alive and he will hold you in high esteem.

A PRAISE TO MY KING

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


My KING:
Great is HE;
And HE deserves great praises.




The blast of HIS nostrils -
Gathers the water,
Up-stands the floods,
Congeals the deep,
And destroys the wicked.




HIS eyes -
Moves to and fro,
To show HIMSELF strong
To HIS people.




HIS Voice -
HE rides upon the heaven of heavens
And sends HIS mighty Voice:
Is not in the great and strong wind,
Is not in the earthquake,
Is not in the fire,
But, in a still small voice;
The LORD is in HIS House
Let everyone keep silence,
For the LORD still speaks.




HE dwells in the thick clouds;
HE sits upon the circles of the earth;
No one can question HIM;

IN HIS PRESENCE

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph


In HIS Presence,
HIS enemies and haters flee before HIM.
The wicked melts at HIS Presence,
They are scattered away like smoke.



In HIS Presence,
The fatherless receives a FATHER
And the widow receives a DEFENDER.
Whatever harbors HIS Presence is found holy.



In HIS Presence,
The lonely is given company.



In HIS Presence,
Freedom is declared unto the captive.



In HIS Presence,
The rebellious cannot stand,
They are driven into an empty dry land.



HIS Presence goes before HIS people
Through their wildernesses, deserts and valleys,
Through their mountain-tops, hills and Sharons.
HIS Presence provides comfort for HIS people.

NATURALLY CHRISTIAN

General poem by Mimmytrippie

MimmytrippieMimmytrippie

The soul of man is so indeed naturally Christian...
Sin is not in the nature of our being;
It is against nature -our nature- and against the God who made it...
How I wish the contemporary Christian community would reclaim this verse rather than avoid it.



If the kingdom of God is within us ,written into the constitution of our being -the way we were made to live -then ,when we sin ,not only do we cut ourselves from God ,we also cut ourselves from our own potential ;we disrupt ourselves ,our future ,our all...

Only Time Will Tell

General poem by Kinzzle

KinzzleKinzzle


Oh my God! She´s pregnant again
That joyful experience that ends with a pain
A baby is born; the pain is now a gain
Only time will tell if the gain was in vain



Before he was born, God has known him/her
And has ordained him for a mission
To be a priest, counselor and solution to his generation
He can´t run the race without a vision
Which he has to discover at that appointed time.



Many were born but few were chosen
Few were chosen a few were fruitful
To whom much is expected much is given
For unto us a child is born and a pattern was given
He/she has been given a pattern in Christ-the first born of all

WHAT IS LIFE

General poem by T-Ralph

T-RalphT-Ralph

Are we just bio-molecules or socio-beings?
Are we just products of evolution or a chanced big-bang explosion?
Are the confines of life
Defined within M.R.N.I.G.E.R.D.?



Are we the design of a "Divine Being"
Having a beginning of pure Light?



Deep within each creature´s heart
We cannot deny the acknowledgement
Whether pure, defiled, altered or corrupted
That there´s something definitely missing;
Far beyond this bio-molecular structure -
"The desire of a CREATOR
Waiting to be fulfilled;
The Purpose of Life".



The definition of life
Is found in its purpose.

THE PRECEPTS OF THE LORD

General poem by T-Ralph

The precepts of the Lord are confessions, converting and correcting;
The precepts of the Lord are convicting, completing and conversing;

The precepts of the Lord are inspiring, informing and instructing;
The precepts of the Lord are pure, powerful and perfect;
The precepts of the Lord are precious, preserving and productive;

JUST ONE CUP, LORD!

General poem by oluwamary

Lord,
I crawled across the barrenness to You,
With my empty cup,
Uncertain in asking
Any kind of refreshment,
Begging still, "Just this one cup, Lord"
If only I had known You better,
I would have come running with a bucket.

I WILL TRUST YOU

General poem by oluwamary

I will not doubt,
Though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home,
With broken masts and sails;
I shall believe the Hand that never fails,
For seeming evil worketh good for me,
And though I weep
Because these sails are tattered,
Still will I hope.
Though my best hopes are shattered,
I TRUST IN THEE.

THE LOVE WE KNOW

General poem by oluwamary

oluwamaryoluwamary


The love of Christ towards us;
The immensity of His redeeming love.
To know this; to feel this; to have a lively sense of this,
Is one of the highest privileges of the Christian.
Help us Lord; that YOUR LOVE WE KNOW.



Nothing will so much ignite gratitude in our hearts;
Nothing will prompt us so much to a life of SELF-DENIAL;
Nothing will make us so benevolently pour out our self in HIS SERVICE;
Nothing will make us so die to the world with its pleasures.
Nothing but the Love WE KNOW.

Dwelling with God; Doing and Dominating like God,
Communing with God; Commanding and Creative like God,

With a task to teach the Truth,

The unfolding of Kingdom mysteries
And the expounding of timeless truths.
Born out of a strong conviction
That the written WORD of GOD
Remains the final authority
For guidance in all areas of man´s life.




It is thus tailored by the Spirit to;

General poem by eagle500

Life, Oh life!
An array of events,
Arraigned before us all,
How shall we choose?
What is there to choose?
How do we live?
Challenges come, challenges go!
Some to kill our flesh; others to make toughed our spirit,
Another to leave a hunger for God,
Greatness lies in challenges,
Victorious are we,
A true life is in the True Vine.

General poem by Kinzzle

Lord am waiting on You
Patiently waiting on You
I know nothing else I can do
But to keep waiting on You



Am seriously worried about the time
Which seems to fly
Faster than a plane in the sky
Though waiting on You seem to still take time
You my strength while am waiting on You



Those that will wait upon the Lord
Shall renew their strength
They shall mount up with wings
Like the eagles
They shall walk and will not be weary
They shall run and not faint
That´s why am willing to wait



You´re a God that is not time bound
Unlike men that see time as a limitation
Your Grace (strength) have I found

I am so thirsty
I need a drink again
I have had many
Yet they have all been in vain



Drank from the well of money and fame
Yet things are still the same
Craving and yearning are still coming through
I feel so empty inward and didn´t know what to do



Found someone with a similar condition
Who married 5 husbands to ease her situation?
They still couldn´t help her it was easy to tell
Even with a 6th, she went to the well
Alas she met a 7th man that gave her the solution



Went to Him also, His name was Jesus
Asked for His help like a slave begging his master
I begged Him to show me which well was real
To believe and accept Him as ...

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER

General poem by Kinzzle

KinzzleKinzzle

My prayers are answered all the time
When I talk to God in my quiet time
My wants and needs all the rhyme



My prayer can never be time bound
Because of that mercy seat I have found
Where the effectual prayer of the righteous availed much
And above judgment, His mercy touch



Therefore prayer shouldn´t be a bore
It´s the only way to speak to God
For Christ´s own it should be the core
It binds us to trinity in one accord



I praise Jehovah God of all
To whom my prayers ascend to and doesn´t fall
In winter, spring, I call
Anywhere in the terrestrial ball!!!
